A Lost Soul, BH Radio and Thunder!

Summer is here, and it's a hot one! Let's hope the rain holds off this year, so the sun can burn some memories into this muddled head of mine. It's been a busy time, these last couple of months. So, without further a do, here's some news from a humid and busy Cornwall.

Dark Fall: Lost Souls
A Returning Character

Pop open the mock-champagne, for Matilda Fly is back in town. Dark Fall fans will remember Matilda as the ghostly failed actress, holed up at The Station Hotel till the press had lost the scent. She was a rather tragic figure, and a little unpleasant, but people really do remember her quite fondly. I've always wanted to 'do' something with Matilda, anything really, as she seemed so strong, and dare I say it, very adventure game-like. She's one of those cool characters, who come across very easily, with minimum effort from me. So, you can imagine my surprise, the other day, when I found myself captured by her gaze....right here on Looe High Street.



Bracken Tor: The Time of Tooth and Claw. New game!

Just a quick post to say how excited I am by Shadow Tor Studios new game, Bracken Tor: The Time Of Tooth And Claw. It looks to be quite a chilly, creepy experience. Graphics-wise, the thing looks the biz! Well done Matt.



Here's some details:

Explore the desolate moorland, searching for evidence.
Travel back in time, to The Bronze Age, to learn its secrets.
A complete interactive world; brought to life on your PC.
Environmental sounds and weather to heighten the experience.
An unnerving and eerie soundtrack, to chill the blood.
Experience virtual archaeology, and uncover the past.
Survive beast attacks using items close at hand. Defend yourself!
Glean clues from newspaper articles and local radio broadcasts.
Solve a bloody murder through investigation and detection.

I had better get back to working on Dark Fall: Lost Souls. Looks like I have stiff competition in Cornwall, when it comes to spooky adventure games. That can never be a bad thing.

See you at Bracken Tor. Bring a thermos of tea, and…
